BuzzBadge: Yahoo removing Overture Keyword Tool?

Yahoo removing Overture Keyword Tool?



I received an email from Perry Marshall, the author of Definitive Guide To Google Adwords, saying that Yahoo is thinking of removing Overture Keyword Selector tool.

It make sense if they are angry that people use it to build keyword list but turn out to advertise on Google. That can be the main reason they punch back.

But this punch can hurt them. Google is already that big, and I don't think it will be shook at all with that move.

In addition to that, suppose Yahoo really removes the overture keyword tool, there are thousands of services waiting to take over the stage. Everyone can always benefit from providing a keyword tool that gets so much traffic.

One of such substitutes is WordTracker's Free Keywords selection tool.

A search on the keyword "dog" shows:

98957dogs
62698dog
23844dogs for sale
10063dog breeds
6682dog names
5530dog the bounty hunter
5343dog kennel
3405reindeer dogs
3075who let the dogs out
plus a list of...well, I guess, about 100 keywords. They are cumulative count for 90 days.

If you are not using keywords on your blog yet, and unless you are already doing very well, keywords can rank your blog higher in search engines, thus giving you more traffic.

Today's BuzzBadge goes to WordTracker Free Keyword.

Update: KeywordDiscovery has also followed up with a kick, another reliable keyword research tool, to replace Yahoo.

Heh, Yahoo has been replaced once, by Google, and now another?
